The richesse and refinement of a classic red wine from Pomerol
Located in the heart of Libourne, Chateau Mazeyres is an iconic property of the Pomerol appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux. The estate boasts ancient origins, dating back to Roman times. Since 1992, Alain Moueix has been managing Chateau Mazeyres with great talent and passion, applying to his wines a great expertise and know-how.
The Chateau Mazeyres vineyard covers 24.60 hectares of vines in the heart of the Pomerol appellation in an exceptional terroir. The vines have been cultivated biodynamically since 2012 with the Biodyvin certification by Ecocert obtained in 2018. The Chateau Mazeyres vineyard is located on the western and southern terraces of the appellation, on 3 different types of soil: fine clay, clayey sand and gravelly-sandy clay. The unique nature of these soils gives the wines of Chateau Mazeyres a unique personality and a velvety mouthfeel.
Thanks to favorable climatic conditions throughout the year, 2019 is undoubtedly a very great vintage at Chateau Mazeyres. The winter was mild, followed by a wet spring. It was at the end of June that summer made its comeback with scorching hot temperatures. The use of herbal teas and biodynamic preparations applied to the soil and vines by the technical team helped to combat the risks caused by the rain in August. The composition of the soil also prevented the vines from undergoing too much water stress. For this 2019 vintage, the harvest of Chateau Mazeyres began on September 12 and ended on October 3.
50% in barrels, 20% in 7 hl ovoid concrete tanks, 20% in amphoras and small tanks, 10% in foudres.
Merlot (80%), cabernet franc (20%).
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Mazeyres 2019 promises to be a fantastic Pomerol red wine. This wine presents a great richness of aromas and flavors. The vintage is endowed with a uniquely silky texture, a signature of the property. The harmony and classicism of the Chateau Mazeyres 2019 make it an iconic wine of the Pomerol appellation, from a remarkable vintage ending in -9.
